Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts discussed in this book The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS): Shaping the Reforms, Academia and China (1977–2003). The entries are arranged in alphabetical order from A to Z. This book is a socio-political history of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS). CASS is organized directly under the Ministry of Education, and it is advertised as China’s most prestigious institution of higher learning and academic advisory organ of all governmental bodies. A closer study of the link between the organizational structure of CASS and its research regulations provides insights into how the so-called free competition among academic schools of thought is supported with political guidance. It also shows how political research in an academic environment is organized and how state policy-makers absorb a part of its research results.

Keywords: Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS); socio-political history
